Opening for Richard Swift (Secretly Canadian) at a Rough Trade night at the Enterprise in Chalk Farm. Then in Berlin Listen Lisse supported The Meanwhiles as part of their European tour.

Get Out’ was the second full length album release by Pita (aka Peter Rehberg). The folllow up to the award winning ‘Seven Tons For Free’. Its harsh use of available computing devices made it popular both in and outside electronic music circles of the time, especially the 11 minute anthem like 3rd track. David Keenan in his liner notes states that ‘Get Out’ “...stands as the first major musical laptop statement in the same way that Jimi Hendrix’s Are You Experienced album spoke for the most extended instrument-specific modes of the electric guitar three decades earlier”. Out of print for over half a decade, now remastered and packaged in a 6 panel digipack. Half the original edition was printed in red, the other in blue. This definitive edition comes in purple. Extra content comes in the form of the 3 tracks which appeared on the the split 12” with Kevin Drumm released by BOXmedia in 2000.

REVIEW : In abstract musical terms, think of this man as a Barbarian warlord with a laptop, tapes, voice and some distortion pedals. He makes noise since 1994 and plays or has playaed in many bands of different styles(Jazzkammer, The Sleazy Listeners, The Territory Band, The Skull Defekts, Climax of Copenhagen just to name a few).
